Last weekend, 19 MFHS theater students attended the Texas Thespian Festival in Dallas. Their hard work culminated in seven National Qualifiers from MFHS and four sold out performances in front of thousands of Texas theatre students!  During the Festival, Lupita Mora and Siler O’Connor finished their year long run with the All State Show, Big Fish. The MFHS students performed and collaborated with some of the best students and directors in the State.  Marble Falls was one of only 6 schools in Texas with multiple groups in the performance finals.

National qualifiers included Holden Fox in Stage Management, Laura Fischer in Costume Construction, and Ellie Isaack in Lighting Design.  Blaire Hambrick and Alyssa Anderson received perfect scores and were one of 31 groups in all of the performance categories to make the finals and national qualification.  Corey Bogue and Katie Mintz also received perfect scores and were also performance finalists and achieved national qualification.
